The Stevenson Career Connection

Since Stevenson University’s founding more than 70 years ago, connecting students to their career aspirations has been at the heart of our mission.

In the classroom, through real-world experiences, and through professional preparation, the Stevenson Career Connection develops our student's career readiness and sets the stage for their professional success after college. It begins with providing each student a support team of success coaches, career advisors, faculty mentors, and internship coordinators who will keep them on track to their goals during each year at Stevenson.

In the freshman and sophomore years, the focus is foundational experiences and career exploration that introduce students to the career options tied to their desired path of study through career-focused first-year seminars, foundational courses in their majors, pre-professional courses, and workshops offered by the Stevenson Career Connection Center.

In the junior and senior years, students put their experience into practice through upper-level coursework, required internships in each major, and Professional Minors that can be added to their majors for additional career competencies. Career fairs and on-campus recruiting, networking opportunities, mock interviews, employer site visits, and mentoring organized through the Career Connection Center prepare our students for successful job searching and interviewing as they establish their professional brand. The Stevenson Career Connection ultimately helps our students create surer paths to their post-college careers, and 94 percent of Stevenson graduates are employed or are pursuing further education within six months of graduation.
